Publisher Comments:

The book for every woman who can't leave home without her lipstick.

What is it about lipstick? It appears on the counters of drug and department stores with the come-hither wink of candy and chocolate. There's something about the way it looks and feels. There's a ritual to putting it on. It's like a drug. An instant fix for sex appeal and glamour. It's a bite-sized magic wand.

About the Author

Jessica Pallingston is a certifiable lipstick addict and owns over one hundred tubes. She lives in New York City.

A delightful look at the history of one cosmetic most women couldn't go without. The book covers modern lipstick's predecessors, from the obvious to the bizarre, and includes recipes for making your own. Readers also find out where the modern marvel of "free gift with purchase" came from, and the many roles lipstick has had over the years.
